recovery. in terms of health care costs related to the aca, while most business leaders that we have spoken to have said is they understand we needed to do something. small-business owners are impacted disproportionately by rising health-care costs. the current health c arpl work for them less well thanlarg companies because they don't have buying power. if you look at some of the reforms, you see a number of efforts to try to reduce costs for small businesses to, like creating exchanges, for example. small in 2011, small businesses paid 25% more for insurance than large companies. the exchange is meant to help small business. you are right. with the new regulations set to take effect in a couple of years, it is another reason to be careful and protect small businesses from tax increases. what the obama people will tell you is that they have cut taxes for small business 17 times and 90% of the small businesses in america would not be effected by higher individual taxes. host: here is "the miami herald" this morning. pennsylvania. independent caller. caller: he said it earlier when they go t

intermediate deficit problem and implementation of the cost saving measures strengthened over time in the aca will deal with their long-term health care problem. so we are not that far away and we have other tremendous strengths in our country that would allow us to make the kind of investment to transform the economy, to do with the reality of stagnant wages and a sense of diminished opportunities. we have strengths. we can do it. we need the public to rain and behavior that's destructive and we need political leaders to act forcefully. given enough to bipartisan commissions and searched enough for bipartisan consensus. for sensible hard all politics along these lines. >> norm, i particularly cutie take the money question. a couple political had a great shared that showed that party polarization in congress was directly correlated with increasing concentrations of wealth from increasing equality went together artisan polarization. and the money question you can handle so many different ways. i'm really concerned about it posed citizens united system with a federal election commission that's

of 2010, the congressional budget office was projecting out some savings because of the a.c.a. but they were figuring about 4% per capita growth, again as you pointed out this chart now shows we're down to 2%. so they've been revising their estimates over the last two years and the net savings, the recalculation just in the last two years has been hundreds of billions of dollars of lower expenditure than they had first thought was going to be the case. when you compare that magnitude of savings with, for example, raising the eligibility age to 67, i mean, they're dwarfed. it is really just a small portion of what efficiencies in the system are capable of producing. and the fact of the matter is that raising the eligibility age, i mean, there's no free lunch. the fact is that even though these are people that willing challenged in the private insurance market, 65 and 66 are still the healthiest population within the medicare pool. so the ones who remain in medicare, their part b premiums are going to go up and that's not just me saying it, it's the keiser family foundation who

the entire system. from private companies and individuals. we are trying to do that, in building the aca is important in terms of delivery reforms. pay doctors differ in their rewards quality. we should do that sooner than later. save those dollars sooner. in those discussions, are there other ways that we can see revenues come in from within the health-care system? that is on the table. i am not keen on increasing the age on medicare. we have gone to a really big debate about finding a way to have all americans have health insurance. that is taking a group of americans and figure out how they afford health coverage. that shifts the cost of subsidies and they go into the exchange and make it more expensive for younger people because the older court is in that group. -- cohort is in that group for medicare, these are the least expensive singers we have. the most expensive seniors are much older. you have to look exactly at the consequences and whether that is cost-savings for government and families? >> the president had a firm statement this week to the business roundtable about the debt
